== == In act 2 scene 2, she is embarrassed because she is thinking outloud, and talking about Romeo, but she didn't know Romeo was hiding and listening until later. She says, "Thou know'st the mask of night is on my face, / Else would a maiden blush bepaint my cheek / For that which thou hast heard me speak tonight."
